Stock Risers: 2019 Wings
Several players in the 2019 class across the state have raised their profile this season and here, Prep Hoops takes a look at five of the biggest risers this season.
Jacob Coleman, 6’5, SF, 2019, Basehor-Linwood
After putting together a strong summer playing for MoKan Select, Coleman has taken his game to new heights this season with Basehor-Linwood. He is an inside-out small forward who can handle the ball a little, post up and is a knock down shooter. He has put together a terrific all-around stat line this season is drawing attention from college programs.
Spencer Jones, 6’6, F, 2019, Bishop Miege
Jones is still feeling his way as an offensive player for Miege as the xx mostly look to several returning players for offensive production, but Jones is an athletic wing with good size who can defend multiple positions and has a raw, but emerging skill set. He is starting to draw attention from college programs and will likely be a player on college radars this spring and summer.
Keehan Miller, 6’4, G/F, 2019, Wichita South
An underrated performer, Miller is a shot maker and shot creator, capable of getting buckets from all over the court. He can put it on the floor and get to the basket and can also knock down 3-pointers with ease. He is among the more underrated prospects in the 2019 class but is putting together a big junior season and drawing attention this season.
Joe Rost, 6’5, F, 2019, St. Thomas Aquinas
A coaches son, Rost brings terrific basketball IQ to the court and the ability to play bigger than his listed height due to his length. He is a long, rangy athlete who does a good job on the boards and gets in the passing lanes well. His calling card as a player is his ability to knock down outside shots and is widely considered to be among the top shooters in the 2019 class.
Savonni Shazor, 6’6, F, 2019, Lawrence
Shazor is an emerging wing player with terrific size and length with a diverse skill set. He can handle the ball a little and has a smooth outside 3-point shot. He still has work to do in the weight room and needs to get bigger and stronger, but has terrific upside due to his unique combination of size and skill set.
